Still at the Garden in the Woods, in Framingham, Massachusetts. Tough to ID this Swallowtail butterfly since my butterfly guide only has photos with the wings open. Many species have color schemes that are different when the wings are open vs wings being closed.
I have added a comment to last nights posting of White-fruited Red Baneberries. If you are interested.!
Zoom for best viewing details.
Thanks for stopping by, taking a look and for all your previous favs and comments.
They are very much appreciated.

Very lovely flutterby! Nice capture! Perhaps the guides need to be revised to show wings closed as well as open.

Cool focus and color in this capture of the black swallowtail, Dana, a variety I've never seen before.

It might be a "Spicebush Swallowtail" Dana. Excellent capture!
